Camera Obscura

Scottish indie-pop greats Camera Obscura have a good excuse for taking more than a year to come to town behind “Desire Lines,” their fifth album for 4AD Records: Frontwoman Traceyanne Campbell and bassist Gavin Dunbar each became first-time parents. The new record proves the band already did a fine job raising its bouncing, bittersweet, Smiths-weaned jangle-pop into full-grown beauty. Tennessee torch-twang singer Laura Cantrell makes the show a nice twofer as opener. Chris Riemenschneider
